A bright one bedroom apartment, nestled on the first floor of a smart brick development. A serene sanctuary on a quiet close next to the greenery of Forest Lane Park. You're moments from the heart of Forest Gate and amazing transport links.

You're just a nine minute walk to Forest Gate Station for the Elizabeth Line that will zip you to Liverpool Street and the City in only thirteen minutes. Or stay on the train for just five more minutes and be whisked to Tottenham Court Road and the West End.


You'll be eager to entertain friends in your 165 square foot open plan and dual aspect kitchen and reception. You have sleek smoky grey countertops and plenty of storage space in your glossy white cabinets. A sparkling stainless steel sink sits at a window with lovely leafy views. Blonde engineered wood flows underfoot beckoning you to your crisp white living area, blissfully bathed in natural light from a second large window. Plenty of room for a dining table plus a sofa to snuggle up and watch a movie on.

Your bedroom is a soft grey and rose eighty eight square foot sanctuary, with bountiful built in wardrobes for ample storage. A large majestic mirror reflects the luminescence from your large window. Across the pristine hall, your brilliant bathroom is decked out in modern marble style tiling, more gleaming glossy cabinets and a chrome heated towel rail. Your tub is dreamily deep and holds a refreshing rainfall shower overhead. The perfect place to unwind and soak the cares of the day away.

You're perfectly placed to discover all Forest Gate has to offer, right next to the fabulous Forest Lane Park and its wonderful woodland, pretty pond and serene atmosphere. Venture behind the mall and you will encounter the vast greenery of the Olympic Park. Closer still is Winchelsea Road and the stretch of converted railway arches home to locally loved independent outlets. Here you'll find The Wild Goose bakery, where you can sample scrumptious sustainable delights, served up using only locally sourced ingredients. Nearby is the Wanstead Tap, a locally loved community hub that hosts eclectic events and an impressive craft beer and wine list.


- Just a mile stroll away or seven minute cycle, is the super sized Stratford Westfield home to countless stores, dining options and a twenty screen cinema.
- Maryland station, which is also served by the lightning fast Elizabeth Line is just a fifteen minute stroll away or a five minute cycle.

a word from the owner...

"This was the first home I had that was completely mine. The perfect place to get on the property ladder. After checking out several places in the area, I loved how spacious and bright the flat is, with much larger rooms than many one-beds I saw. I was very happy here, especially after doing work to modernise it. I decided to make the living space open-plan, installed a new kitchen, bathroom and fitted wardrobes in the bedroom. I love the view from the living room of the park and historic hospital. The street is quiet with lots of families and young professionals. The area has some great independent restaurants, coffee shops and very convenient to travel into central London with the Elizabeth line. It's also great to be near the Wanstead overground and close to the expansive Wanstead Flats."

Our Local Guide:
Forest Gate

Magpie Close, Forest Gate — Stow Brothers

If you’ve already heard Chiwetel Ejiofor or Idris Elba proudly discussing their hometown, you probably don’t need us to convince you of Forest Gate’s merits, but for those who haven’t, let us catch you up…

With a heritage rooted in culture, it’s not surprising that Forest Gate has a strong creative community today. During just one week in the 60s, the Upper Cut Club music venue there hosted – deep breath – The Who, the Animals, the Spencer Davis Group, Geno Washington and Jimi Hendrix. These days you’re more likely to find the area’s artistic-types supping drinks in the cool cafes and bars. Along with the period property and proximity to green space, this independent scene has been the main draw for new arrivals to the area, although the fact that Forest Gate is now on the Crossrail’s Elizabeth line has definitely helped nudge people in the right direction.
